Jay Cutler probably doesn’t need to be reminded of his good fortune now that coach Marc Trestman, a quarterback guru, is at the helm, but ex-Raiders QB Rich Gannon — a former top student at the school of Trestman — will do it anyway.

“The big thing for Jay Cutler is just realizing that you have an unbelievable opportunity here to work with a guy who has really had success with quarterbacks,” Gannon said. “You have to ask yourself, ‘Why has he had this success?’ ’’

Cutler, Josh McCown and Matt Blanchard are quickly learning why through six organized team activities, a three-day minicamp in April and numerous meetings.

Trestman’s résumé includes overseeing Gannon’s MVP season, working well with Steve Young, getting production from Bernie Kosar, Scott Mitchell and Jake Plummer and helping to make Anthony Calvillo the Canadian Football League’s greatest passer.

As much as this offseason has been one of farewells for the Bears, it’s still full steam ahead for a team that has wallowed near the bottom of the league offensively for years.

The Trestman way is being inculcated.

“You get that [quarterback guru] perception because the guys you have worked with played well,” McCown said. “But there’s no special dust that he sprinkles on us when we come out the door. He’s just being himself, helping us any way possible and making us be detailed and accountable for what we have to do.”

The Bears’ QBs are learning that Trestman is all about details. He harps on everything from footwork to reads to film study and does it uncompromisingly.

“We are relentless about those things as far as how the quarterback plays,” McCown said. “He cares a great deal of how it’s played.”

“It’s very refreshing,” Blanchard said. “You’re stimulated every single day when you come into work.”

McCown, a 10-year veteran, said Trestman has similarities to other coaches, but his approach to the details is unique. It’s probably because Trestman’s offense is very detailed.

“There is a lot going on,” McCown said.

“There’s so much to do,” Blanchard added.

Gannon said a lot will be demanded from Cutler because Trestman believes the quarterback is the face of the franchise.

“He expects a lot from the quarterback position in terms of leadership, temperament, demeanor,” Gannon said. “He’s constantly giving you reminders.

“It’s probably nothing like he’s ever experienced with Mike Tice or Mike Martz. He’s going to come at it from a totally different angle.”
